Took a chance with the Lobster Eggs Benedict for breakfast a week ago and was not disappointed whatsoever. More food and lobster for the same price that most other places get you for a skimpy lobster roll. Waitress was friendly and we had a nice...More

We stopped in for a few beverages near sunset, and were pleased to get away from the rest of the tourists. We chatted with several locals and enjoyed our time there.

This restaurant, right on the water (they have a dinghy dock for boaters), was a very pleasant, surprising find during our stay in Booth Bay. Their menu is varied and includes everything from lobster and fish to chicken and barbecued ribs. They also have excellent...More
